  1. Like a lot of people I find myself wishing for more resources, but otherwise having a lot of fun! A shame it has to end after only a week. Here's my own fort - I've enjoyed trying to find creative ways to use pieces.
  2. Haven't had this issue on my computer but any levels gained on mobile from battling don't seem to carry over. Got to level 50 on my phone to circumvent the softlock issue, come back to my computer, and I'm still level 46.
  3. Woke up unpleasantly surprised to find the game still broken. Clearing my cookies did nothing, although I am still able to repair and gather resources.
  4. Having the same issue - was working fine until I repaired units for the first time. Not sure if there was a correlation or just bad luck.
  5. Ah, thanks, just wanted to double check since I've been having personal tech issues lately and I can never be 100% sure whether it's just me or if it's showing for everyone else. Not sure where else I'll find good egg sprites but I'll look into fixing that.
  6. Was recommended I take this relatively small problem here: there's a slight error with chicken eggs sprites. The outline of the hatching sequence is subtly darker than the whole and dead sprites. (I apologize if these are displaying incorrectly for anyone else, my computer isn't cooperating and I can't for the life of my figure out what's happening) Anyways, this obviously is a low priority issue, but the inconsistency is bugging me.
  7. Yeah, that seems like the right place. Thanks! Edit: are the egg sprites I posted obnoxiously large for anyone else? My browser has been acting wonky lately and I just want to make sure this is a strictly me problem and that I haven't by mistake linked unnecessarily giant images.
  8. I mean, there's already a soft friending system on the forums with the follow feature, and even you yourself admitted you can't really think of any benefits. Considering how little user interaction there is on the main site, I can't see much of a reason for this. If we ever get on-site PMs or... something? Maybe this might be useful? But as it stands it just kinda feels like having friends for the sake of having friends. I can't even really think of many theoretical future features that would necessitate this.
  9. I agree that raising the cb limit can only make users more generous, not the other way around. 4 seems like the perfect number here, for reasons discussed above, and is much less restrictive than 2. I don't have much more to add that hasn't already been said above, so I'll just simply toss in my support.
  10. I don't really bite eggs, but the problem here is so simple that it almost feels like an oversight. Definitely support.
  11. Kinda feeling as angelic is here, it's great and all to have replies, but most of them are just. Hm. Possibly what is most frustrating is how it feels like most of them were closed without chance for rebuttal or further discussion. Just, "nope. This is how it is." We barely got answers and several points in closed threads went unanswered. It stings a little to feel like he didn't even get past the OP in some of these suggestions, with meaningful discussion, alternative proposals, and minor tweaks getting totally swept under the rug. Maybe we should have been a little more careful what we wished for when we said "even just a hard yes or no would be preferable to nothing" because seeing some of these threads die with so little elaboration is extremely disheartening and makes it feel like we aren't really being heard.
  12. Amazingly, as the adage goes, "ask and you shall receive." I don't necessarily agree with all of TJ's decisions or brief elaborations (or lack thereof) but I at least am definitely happy to be getting some closure and a definitive answer rather than an ambiguous silence.
  13. I'm personally of the opinion that if a dragon has conflicting body types, they should just both be listed, for simplicity's sake. There are some exceptions that are just too major or complex to fit under the umbrella of our current classification system and it's, imo, better to have a few wonky entries than complicate stuff and make it less likely to be considered for implementation.
  14. Is there anywhere minor issues can be posted? I've noticed a very small issue with chicken egg sprites but it doesn't really feel like it deserves a whole thread, nor do I even know if it's actually a mistake at all. As you can see, the outline of the whole/dead egg is a bit lighter than the cracked version.
  15. Oh, I didn't necessarily mean a fixed percent, I just meant ~10%, for the simplicity of calculations. Sorry I hadn't made that more clear.
  16. This assumes summon rates would not be affected by ratios, which I cannot say for certain, but do at least reasonably suspect strongly enough to still be against unlimited summons. If we're stingy and assume everyone has a 10% success rate per summon, unlike the wiki's estimated 20% (and yes I do know the wiki should be taken with a big ol grain of salt, which is why we're assuming 10%), that's about 2.4 GoNs per year, and once you start factoring ratios into that, those numbers will start to get more turbulent, and the players who enjoyed summons at their "freshest" will have an unfair head start over players who joining a year or two after this mechanic was implemented. Again, I can't say with certainty this is how TJ would do it, but I also can't say with certainty he wouldn't, especially with how much of the site uses ratios already. I just don't want to risk doing that to these hypothetical future users. I will admit I'm not intimately versed in the behind the scenes mechanics of DC so if I'm pulling any of this out of my butt go ahead and correct me, but the prospect of unlimited GoNs is worrying to me for more than just flavor reasons like "you shouldn't be able to get unlimited gods."

  18. 45,823 Only 19,713 more posts to go before I reach one of my lucky numbers, haha... I'm gonna be waiting quite awhile, aren't I?
  19. Hmm, maybe. Dress clothes are stiff and not terribly practical to throw down in - I'd give it a shot, for sure.
  20. This actually brings up an interesting point that's only tangentially related to the OP: should dragons be able to have two or more body types? Not sure if I'm confident enough to make a whole suggestion topic dedicated to this yet, but like mana, perhaps dragons should have both a primary body type (for zombies and other reasons? I'm not 100% sure where else body types are used like this in the cave), and a secondary body type, for raffle purposes, and just to satisfy arguments like "are gilded bloodscales western or eastern?" or "how the heck are we supposed to address terraes?" I'm also going to throw in support for displaying breeding groups, both for newbies and the completionist in me who likes seeing all information cataloged, no matter how small. Even if this doesn't come to be though, I definitely agree there are some dragons that make 0 sense and can't even really be stretched to fit their "official" body types.
  21. I've never been viewbombed before either, until just today. There's a first for everything. I think there are calmer, less cynical approaches to a problem than to immediately assume someone got mad at your opinion on digital creatures.
  22. I think it's very rash to instantly assume you're being attacked specifically because of this thread, especially because so many people have been reporting issues with viewboming today and possibly yesterday totally unrelated to their forum activity. There are other threads to talk about this kind of misfortune but it seems a bit hot tempered, off topic, and imo, in poor taste to take your grievances to a young and not even terribly controversial topic.
  23. I'd like to chime in that this user was also spotted using alts, not just on the account #8528. If you use discord and get a suspicious friend request, fog your stuff just to be certain, I received a suspicious dm and shortly after my views started spiking. No losses yet, luckily, but can't be overcautious.
  24. I'm in the "don't remove the limit entirely, but raise it," crowd. The lowest I'd begrudgingly tolerate is a limit of 4, so I can get both an s2 and an s1, but like DragonLady said, 6 seems to be the perfect number here. Just double the amount we can already get. It's not too high, but satisfies both breeders and sprite collectors, and gives us a little more wiggle room. I wouldn't mind making it unlimited if it was changed to one GoN per trio, however I don't see this happening any time soon, and seeing as how it encroaches a bit on the Sinomorph's gimmick, I can't even say I'd really like this option all that much, but it'd be an acceptable compromise if it did ever happen.
  25. I'm not typically the type to be confused by body types, but I can understand how the raffle requirements can be confusing and obtuse to people (see: lindwyrm vs wyrm discussion just above), so although I personally wouldn't use it, I'll still throw my support in.
